Are We Seeing the End of the Democratic Party (As We Know It) in 2016?
In my book, Great News for America, I predicted that the Democratic Party (as we know it) will end in 2016. It has just happened. The Democratic Party (as we knew it) has effectively ended. It’s over. It’s history.
The Democratic Party (as we knew it) ended on November 9th, 2016, when Clinton conceded the presidential election. She lost the election. The Democrats lost the White House, the House, and the Senate. The Establishment Democratic Party, the Democratic National Committee, and the Clinton political machine, ALL lost.
Let’s talk more about it now …
How have they Done at the National Level?
In less than a decade, the Democratic Party has lost three conservative landslide elections at the national level. In 2010, they lost a conservative landslide House election with 63 seats going Republican. Remarkably, Republicans got a 242 to 193 seat control of the House of Representatives. During that same election year, the Democratic Party lost six seats in the Senate, but still held a majority.
In the 2014 conservative landslide victory, the Democrats lost control of the Senate from 53 to 47 seats in 2010, to a remarkable 54 to 46 control of the Senate by Republicans. That was effectively another 7 seat loss for them. In 2014, House Republicans picked up even more seats and were in their best position politically in 70 years.
Of course, in 2016, the Democratic Party lost control of the White House, yielding both Executive and Legislative branches of the Federal Government to the Republican Party.
How have they Done at the State and Local Levels?
Only 5 States are controlled by both a Democrat Governor and Democrat legislatures. These States are:
- Rhode Island
How has the Democratic Party Done Overall?
According to Michael Barone, the Democratic Party holds fewer elective offices now than they did all the way back to the 1920’s. Not a great position to be in politically.
How have they Done since Election Day?
- Instead of looking in the mirror and honestly assessing why they have been losing elections for a decade, they continue to live in the past. They keep holding on to their progressive socialist ideas that have been rejected over and over again by the voters.
- Instead of focusing on the issues that matter to voters (like global terrorism, law and order, jobs and economic growth), they focus on identity politics and dividing people. They also focus on climate change, an issue voters care little about.
- Instead of accepting the presidential election results, they wasted resources on useless recounts and attempting to intimidate presidential electors before the Electoral College met on December 19th.
- Instead of working with the new Trump administration that was elected legitimately, their first reaction is to attack, and to block, and to delegitimize the Trump administration.
- The Democratic Party appears to many voters as a bunch of sore losers. They are losing support among voters with their post-election antics.
What about the 2018 Election and Beyond?
- The Democratic Party faces a tough 2018 election. Ten Democratic Senators face reelection in red states, some carried by large margins by Trump. It is easy to imagine Republicans gaining a 60 seat majority in the Senate in 2018.
- They will likely be a minority party for a generation or more. As America enters the new American Constitutional Era that I predicted in my book, Great News for America , the Democratic Party and their failed socialist policies and programs (remember ObamaCare) will struggle to be relevant and competitive.
For More Information on This Year’s Presidential Election and the Presidential Transition
Please read my book Great News for America. In it, I correctly predicted 2016 would be an historic and critical presidential election that would usher in a new American Constitutional Era, the Conservative Era. All together, I made ten surprising predictions most of which have already come true or will probably come true. In it, I also discuss the Presidential Transition and what the new president will likely do after the Inauguration.
